Washington, D.C.—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement today regarding Rep. Jeb Hensarling’s (R-TX) announcement not to run for reelection in 2018:

“I want to thank Jeb for his service to this country. He is a true constitutional conservative who understands that free enterprise is critical to a thriving America. Jeb led conservatives in the House as chairman of the Republican Study Committee and has fought tirelessly for all Americans as chairman of the Financial Services Committee. I want to thank him in particular for his work on a hallmark jobs bill, the Financial CHOICE Act, which passed the House this summer, and for his instrumental role in our Better Way agenda. I am going to miss him and this institution will miss him, but knowing Jeb, I’m positive he has a great chapter ahead.”
